DSM 6: How do I make the PC speaker work?

Question

Hi guys,

much to my surprise the search function returned virtually no results for keywords like "speaker" or "beep".

I would like to either use the built-in "Beep Control" functionality in the task scheduler or any other command line utility (like http://www.johnath.com/beep/) to make the PC speaker beep e.g. on system shutdown or disk failure.

The "Beep Control" feature doesn't work at all, no beep to be heard at the scheduled time. I then grabbed the beep binary (x86_64) from the debian package repository but it didn't work either (without any error message though).

 

I am running a bare metal installation of DSM 6 on an ASRock J3455.

 

Do I need a driver? Or do you have any other hints?

Thanks!

J3455 mainboard does not have built-in beep speaker actually.

You may buy a beep speaker and connect it to your main board.

Please refer this link :

Hi, thanks for pointing that out, I actually have a speaker built into my case and connected to the speaker pins on the Mainboard :wink:

 

 

@tamamma: I have experienced some rather weird networking issues with the onboard Realtek chipset. Using an Intel PCIe NIC, everything works fine (bare metal).
